WESTWORLD: SEASON 1 – MUSIC FROM THE HBO SERIES 3XLP
A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the question of free will, WESTWORLD was created for television by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy, who also served as executive producers.
Featuring poignant musical moments from the ten-episode first season, the soundtrack includes composer Ramin Djawadi’s (GAME OF THRONES, IRON MAN, PERSON OF INTEREST) WESTWORLD theme, original compositions, and his celebrated arrangements of well known songs including “Back To Black” (originally performed by Amy Winehouse), “Black Hole Sun” (originally performed by Soundgarden), “Paint It, Black” (originally performed by The Rolling Stones) “A Forest” (originally performed by The Cure) and “No Surprises” (originally performed by Radiohead), among others.
“As WESTWORLD came together, Lisa and I knew that we wanted to take enormous risks with the narrative of the show, tossing the audience into the deep end with our story,” explains Executive Producer Jonathan Nolan. “And we were able to take those risks, knowing that, in addition to our incredible cast, we were collaborating with Ramin Djawadi, an artist whose ability to translate even the most nuanced narrative idea into music is peerless.”
“It’s been a true pleasure to see fans of WESTWORLD connect with both the piano covers and original compositions used in the series,” says Djawadi.
